Police in Northern Virginia said that a 26-year-old driver who wasn’t using a seatbelt died after colliding with another vehicle while driving too fast.
Alex Randy Portillo, a resident of Manassas, was involved in a single-vehicle collision on Tuesday, December 20, in which he repeatedly rolled his 2014 Honda Civic until coming to a stop in the parking lot of a nearby business. Portillo later passed away at a hospital in Virginia.
On Tuesday, December 20, just before 10:45 p.m., members of the Prince William County Police Department’s Crash Investigation Unit went to the 8400 block of Sudley Road in Manassas to look into a reported crash.
According to the inquiry, Portillo lost control and hit a curb while driving too fast in the eastbound lanes of Sudley Road at Rixlew Lane. Before coming to a complete halt in front of a nearby shop, the Honda rolled over numerous times.
Police claim that Portillo was not buckled up during the collision and was thrown from the car. First responders attended to him and then transported him to a nearby hospital, where he eventually passed away as a result of his wounds.
A 24-year-old passenger in Portillo’s car was wearing a seatbelt and received minor injuries in the collision, according to the investigators. The collision, which is still being looked into, included no other vehicles.
